Exxaro acknowledges the five capitals model (natural, human, social, manufactured and financial capital) as a balanced approach to sustainable growth to increase our potential to invest and develop.
Equally, we believe sustainability is an outcome of our actions — it is not a separate objective, but the foundation for our commitment to our strategic objectives which are, themselves, aligned to the five capitals.
We add value to the capitals during the lifetime of every mining operation – with the intention of leaving each area holistically richer after mine closure, even though some capitals might be negatively perceived at points in the life cycle.
During each stage of the mining value chain, which we refer to as the resource-to-market business model, the cumulative net effect is to leave a positive impact. Each sustainability capital that we affect will be responsibly managed to maximize the benefit to all stakeholders, internally and externally.
